That's about the only way I see Silva winning.
Jones has a massive reach. He can throw anything and have enough time to get out of the way of a counter. And if Sonnen can get his hands on Silva Im sure Jones can. The difference would be that Jone has so much leverage with his length that stopping his TD would be very difficult. Jones has ragdolled some big LHWs such as Bonner. Plus he has taken some LHWs with really good wrestling such as Hamil, Vlady and Vera down with ease.
